DEAL FELL THROUGH! Back on the market! A lovely prewar full-service building located in the heart of the Upper East Side’s Gold Coast is home to a beautiful, bright and quiet one bedroom home in mint condition with elegant old-world details and grand scale throughout. Ideally located on a beautiful tree-lined brownstone, mansion and small apartment building block near all the best the community has to offer, including world-renowned cultural institutions, excellent dining, fabulous city markets, boutique shopping and within a few blocks from Central Park. Residing on the third floor of a handsome and extremely well-maintained coop, this beautiful home offers an elegant living room, spacious windowed eat-in kitchen, serene corner bedroom, large entry foyer, renovated bathroom and generous storage. The grand scale is all the more impressive by the 9 foot ceilings, amazing south and east light and pretty, lush brownstone garden views from every room. Gorgeous preserved architectural elements include beamed ceilings, hardwood floors (herringbone pattern in living room), pristine crown and baseboard moldings, built-in bookshelves and original door fixtures. Modern comforts include through wall air conditioning, renovated bath and kitchen, custom closet storage (including a large double walk-in closet and two entryway closets) and Jonathan Adler light fixtures included in sale. The windowed eat-in kitchen offers plenty of room to cook and casually dine and was upgraded with all new custom cabinetry. The space boasts granite countertops and backsplash, under counter lighting and appliances that include a gas range oven, built-in microwave, Miele dishwasher and a new GE refrigerator. The serene and spacious, corner bedroom showcases two sunny exposures, both south and east overlooking gorgeous brownstone gardens and pretty trees that sparkle in the sun. This is a fully-staffed, pet-friendly building, with low maintenance and excellent service. Amenities include F/T doorman, live-in superintendent, a fitness room, common storage, bicycle storage, laundry room and a garden for residents. Pied-a-terres and washer/dryers are allowed. Please note that an assessment for capital improvements totaling $2,494 is due in quarterly payments over the next year.
